When you want to get away with your partner and enjoy a romantic break, there’s no where better than Ballymena. The city has some marvellous restaurants, special hotels and breathtaking views of nature at her finest, all of which can provide the backdrop for a memorable romantic getaway. The relaxed pace of life in Ballymena and Northern Ireland will help you and your beloved settle into each other’s company to rekindle the flames of passion.
Ballymena has some lovely hotels, warm and welcoming guesthouses and bed and breakfast accommodation which are great for couples.
Several of the hotels in the Ballymena area have a honeymoon suite and even if it’s not your honeymoon, there are few romantic gestures that say “I love you” more than booking a special room for the two of you. Throw in top notch room service – possibly a special Irish breakfast with soda bread and smoked salmon, or a bottle of champagne in the evening – and your romantic break is sure to be a great success.
A good bed and breakfast can also put the spark of romance back into your relationship. Several bed and breakfasts in the Ballymena area have spacious, comfortable rooms with plenty of privacy to enjoy each other’s company.
The sunsets in a Northern Irish summer can be long and glorious, and all the better for having a superb view. A country pub or restaurant with views of Slemish Mountain is a perfect venue to enjoy a sunset over the Antrim Hills.
Or why not get lost in the woods of Glenariff Forest Park? There are several trails through the ancient woodland and it’s easy to escape the crowds even in the height of summer. The tranquil forest and the birds and wildlife will give you lots of reasons to grow closer.
The County Antrim coastline is never far away, and it’s an easy drive to get to some wild, deserted beaches where you can enjoy a romantic walk along the sand. White Park Bay has some of the best sand in Northern Ireland and you may even see a wild horse or two. Strolling along the beach, hand in hand, while the waves crash around you and the sun dips over the headland is a recipe for a blossoming romance.
It’s nice to dress up with your partner and go out to enjoy a romantic meal for two and there are several restaurants where couples can forget the rest of the world exists. You can find candlelit tables, private rooms and some excellent cuisine all over Ballymena.
Ballymena has a great many interesting shops and it’s possible to find handmade gold and silver jewellery in the town – a perfect gift for that special someone. Or if you fancy something more playful, why not give your partner a special teddy bear to cuddle when you’re not around.
There are lots of options for romantic breaks in Ballymena – take a look at Expedia to see which hotel might be the best one for you.
